Arc offering two scholarships
The Arc of Jefferson & Nearby Counties is offering two $500 scholarships.
The Susan Presley Scholarship is awarded to a senior high student with a current Individual Education Plan who wishes to pursue a post-secondary education at an accredited institution. The scholarship will be awarded once the recipient has been accepted by the school of his or her choice and will be used for school-related expenses.
The Arc also is granting the James Horan Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a college student pursuing a career in special education or a related field, such as speech/language pathologist or occupational therapist. The applicant should have completed his or her junior year of undergraduate schooling and must maintain a 2.5 grade point average.
Both scholarship recipients must be a resident of Jefferson or a nearby county.
